Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Archive for June 2013

What is your favorite grilled food? Mine are kabobs, whether made with chicken, beef, seafood or lamb, I like putting together ingredients for kabobs.

My BFF from New Rochelle was visiting this weekend, so in addition to some “girl talk” and a few cold Peach Bellinis, we dined on crabs, shrimp and chicken kabobs.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Here we go again…another summer weekend, will it be hot and dry or cool and rainy?  Last Saturday was a perfect day and I had plans of lounging poolside all afternoon, but sometimes pool maintenance can change the best laid plans.  I often dream of having a “Pool Boy”, someone to keep the chemicals balanced, remove the debris and skim the leaves…someone too…HOLD ON…wait a minute!pool boy

 Hubby wouldn’t like that very much and I would probably end up getting someone like Nick Cannon in “Love Don’t Cost A Thing!”pool boy2

We’ve had our pool for about 18 years and there is always maintenance involved some more intense than others like the replacement of tiles.  These fell off a few years ago and it took me too many hours on Saturday to replace them.

weekend and ootd 6 24 13 006

I stopped at Leslie’s Pool Supplies and purchased Patch It, it wasn’t hard to make the putty but like that scene from The Cosby Show, I’d seal one tile and another would fall off – it was frustrating to say the least.

weekend and ootd 6 24 13 005

After several hours of this I gave up but only after using the entire bucket!

weekend and ootd 6 24 13 017

Of course then I had to vacuum out the residue and skim the leaves!

weekend and ootd 6 24 13 009weekend and ootd 6 24 13 002

After all that, I was finally able to sit back and relax for a whole 2 hours!!

weekend and ootd 6 24 13 013weekend and ootd 6 24 13 020

So if you happen to be in the neighborhood – stop by & bring a cold one…AND a Pool Boy!

Are you a Winer – do you like trying new Wines – if so, I want your Wine Winning recipes!

I am not a wine connoisseur nor do I don’t spend a lot for a bottle of wine.  I am a sucker for a deal and love fun colorful bottles, and this is where I shop on FriYays after work.
